The Evils of the New Liturgy

This article is intended to inform modern Catholics of the evils and disastrous effects of the "New Mass" by looking at the history and nature of the New Mass, its fruits, and a prophecy regarding it by a mystic from France.

The History and Nature of the Old and New Mass
In 1970, Pope Paul VI issued a New Order of the Mass that is now used throughout the world in Catholic churches. Before this time, what is commonly referred to as the "Tridentine" or "Latin" Mass, was used by the Church. The Canon, or main part, of this Tridentine Mass, is essentially the same as what the Apostles themselves used, as given to them by Our Lord. Since the time of Christ to 1962, a total of 26 words have been added to the Traditional Canon. Thus, the holy Council of Trent states that this Canon is composed out of the very words of the Lord, the tradition of the Apostles, and the pious institutions of the holy Pontiffs (the 26 words). This is why St. John Vianney said of this Mass: "All the good works together are not of equal value with the Sacrifice of the Mass because they are the works of man, and the Holy Mass is the work of God." Blessed Pope Pius IX, when requested to add the name of St. Joseph to the Canon, replied: "I am only the Pope. What power have I to touch the Canon?"
Because of the hallowed sacredness of the Roman Rite and to protect it, Pope St. Pius V codified the Traditional Latin Mass using the strongest language in the proclamation Quo Primum in 1570. It says in part:
"At no time in the future can a priest, whether secular or order priest, ever be forced to use any other way of saying Mass. And in order once and for all to preclude any scruples of conscience and fear of ecclesiastical penalties and censures, we declare herewith that it is by virtue of our Apostolic authority that we decree and prescribe that this present order and decree of ours is to last in perpetuity, and never at a future date can it be revoked or amended legally. . . .
"And if, nevertheless, anyone would dare attempt any action contrary to this order of ours, handed down for all times, let him know that he has incurred the wrath of Almighty God, and of the Blessed Apostles Peter and Paul."
Despite such a forcible proclamation, the new rite was introduced in 1970. For what reason would the Pope ever change the Mass and what are the differences? The use of the vernacular as opposed to Latin in this rite represents a minor difference between the two Masses compared with the other changes. A total of 35 prayers or about 70% of the Tridentine Mass was replaced or discarded. This includes massive changes in the Canon of the Mass and even in the form of the consecration of the Eucharist, which words come directly from Our Lord's words in the Bible. Every other aspect of the Roman Rite changed as well. Sacred Gregorian chant was usurped by guitar, folk, disco, and even rock music. The priest faces the people instead of the altar and tabernacle. Neither the tabernacle or altar are even present now and Communion is received in the hand. Altar girls, liturgical dancing, Eucharistic ministers, and all other manner of scandal are common and accepted.
None of this is surprising, however, when one considers the origin and motivation for the New Mass. It was formed by a council of 200 individuals, among whom were 6 Protestant ministers who were thanked by Paul VI for their assistance in re-editing in a new manner liturgical texts. Paul VI's intention in replacing the liturgy received directly from Our Lord, according to his intimate friend, Jean Guitton, was "to reform the Catholic Liturgy in such a way that it should almost coincide with the Protestant liturgy." This motive alone explains why such incredible differences exist between the new liturgy and the old, why the New Mass has had disastrous effects, and why Our Lord would give warnings to one of His chosen souls against this Mass.

Prophecy of Marie-Julie Jahenny
Marie-Julie Jahenny, the mystic and Stigmatist of La Fraudais and perhaps the greatest mystic in the history of the Church, was born on the 12th of February, 1850, in a little village in Brittany (in the West of France), called Blain. The eldest of five children, she was brought up by her simple, good parents in that lively faith for which Bretons are renowned. Our Lord favored her with many graces from the time of her First Holy Communion, graces to which she corresponded with ever increasing devotion. She joined the Franciscan Third Order when in her early twenties, to help to sanctify herself in the world.
In 1873, she received from Heaven that most remarkable mystic gift, the Stigmata. From the age of twenty-three until her death, some sixty years later, she bore in her body the Wounds of Our Lord to a more visible degree than had any other stigmatist in the Church's history. In addition to the Five Wounds of the Sacred Hands, Feet and Side, Marie-Julie suffered the Wounds inflicted by the Crown of Thorns and the Cross on Our Lord's Sacred Head and Shoulder respectively, the Wounds of His Scourging, those caused by the ropes with which He was bound, as well as other Wounds of a more mystical nature.
Henceforth, Marie-Julie lived her life of coredemptive suffering (as a victim soul) in a little cottage in the hamlet of La Fraudais, near Blain. She thus fulfilled Our Blessed Lord's desire for her to make reparation for the sins of France and the world. She was favored with frequent visions of Jesus and Mary, as well as many prophetic lights.
The truth of the Heavenly warnings of which she was to be the humble messenger was vindicated by her characteristic simplicity and honesty, her exemplary obedience to her spiritual directors and her Bishop, and of course, by the fulfillment of all she prophesied during her long life. With unfailing accuracy she foretold the two World Wars, the election of Pope Saint Pius X, the various persecutions of the Church, the chastisements and the fate of apostate France. Much remains to unfold. Her warnings for the Last Times should be read by all "who have ears."
Marie-Julie was the wonder of the many scientists who examined her continually, the scorn of unbelievers and the proud, the admiration of her lifelong friend, Monsignor Fourier, Bishop of Nantes, and of the devoted circle of those who made the diffusion of her messages to an ungrateful and unheeding world their life's work. She went to her Heavenly reward on March 4, 1941.
Blind, deaf, dumb and crippled, she had subsisted miraculously on the Blessed Sacrament alone, for the last many years of her life. Surely then, we will not pass over lightly what God has confided to her for the benefit of our own sad days. Now read Marie-Julies's prophecies concerning the new liturgy:
On November 27, 1902 (Ed. note: The seventy-second anniversary of the Miraculous Medal Apparition [November 27, 1830]) and on May 10, 1904, Our Lord warned of the new liturgy which would one day be instituted:
"I give you a warning. The disciples who are not of My Gospel are now working hard to remake according to their ideas, and under the influence of the enemy of souls, a Mass that contains words which are odious in My Sight. When the fatal hour arrives where the faith of my priest is put to the test, it will be these texts that will be celebrated, in this second period."
"The first period is the one of My Priesthood, existing since Me. The second is the one of the persecution, when the enemies of the Faith and of Holy Religion will impose their formulas in the book of the second celebration. Many of My holy priests will refuse this book, sealed with the words of the abyss. Unfortunately, amongst them are those who will accept it."
On May 10, 1904, Our Lady describes the new clergy and its liturgy:
"They will not stop on this hateful and sacrilegious road. They will go further to compromise all at once, and in one blow, the Holy Church, the clergy, and the Faith of my children."
She announces the "dispersion of the pastors" by the Church herself; true pastors, who will be replaced by others formed by Hell: " preachers of new sacraments, new temples, new baptisms, new confraternities."

Fruits of the New Mass
"By their fruits you shall know them. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit, and the evil tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can an evil tree bring forth good fruit." (Matt. 7:15-17) Given the foregoing, it should be plain that the New Mass was conceived for an evil purpose and constructed by evil means. It only follows that such a tree would have disastrous effects on the Church. Let us look at its fruits.
From 1965 to 1973, between 22,000 and 25,000 priests left the priesthood to get married. By 1994, this figure had reached almost 100,000. In 1970 there were 1,003,670 women religious with perpetual or provisional vows; in 1992 that number was down to 655,031. In 1962, there were 46,189 seminarians in the U.S. By early 1992, this number had plummeted to 6,247. (see In the Murky Waters of Vatican II ISBN 0-89555-636-7) In countries such as France and Holland the percentage of Catholics at Mass each Sunday has declined to a single digit. In the U.S., attendance has declined from 71 percent in 1963 to 25 percent in 1993, a decrease of 65 percent. Newsweek polls and surveys show that only 15% of Catholics believe they should always obey Church teaching, nearly as many Catholics think abortion is permissible as non-Catholics, and 75% of Catholics disagree with Church teaching forbidding divorce and contraception. Another study revealed that only 25% of Catholics now believe in the Real Presence and only 50% of the priests.
Who could possibly claim that there is not a terrible crisis of Faith in the Catholic Church? Such are the fruits of the New Mass.

The New Mass is damned by its own nature, by its fruits, and even by Our Lord Himself. The crisis in the Church will continue to worsen until we return to orthodoxy and discipline. Please pray that our dear Savior will grant to our holy Father the Pope and the bishops of the Church the grace to restore the Traditional Latin Mass fully throughout the entire Church.
If we deny one article of our Faith, we are on the road to hell. The New Mass cannot have come from God, whereas the True Mass came directly from God. The only safe course to follow is to attend the Traditional Mass at any cost. It is not worth risking the loss of your soul for all eternity. You can find the Traditional Mass closest to you at
